Arrival Story:
I became convinced that Leila needed a friend. (she didn't, of course) I was grooming dogs at the humane society one night and took a walk through the cat area. I came across this terribly ugly, lethagic, painfully awkward, emaciated 8 month-old. I sat down in her crate and she cuddled behind me...using me as a shelter. I thought, "emaciated, I can fix that!" So, she came to live with Leila and I. I hoped Leila would take the cat under her wing...While they aren't friends, per say, I believe they do keep each other on their toes (rather like siblings who are comforted by the other's presence, but don't really like each other).

At her first houseparty, my shy kitten made her way to the kitchen. There, she surveyed the room, walked to the table and the back to the other side of the kitchen. For some reason, a clear path emerged between the table and kitten. Ling-Hsing took a running start from the other end of the room and seemed to catapult herself onto the table - and right into a cheesecake!

Today my 2-legger came home from lunch. She must have been someplace fancy, because she had something in a plastic baggie. She promptly put some sort of bird meat on paper plates. Leila dug right in, dragging practically half of a wing across the newly-cleaned floor and prying the stray meat from the bone. I decided to take my time, and the realized that it was chicken. Well, my 2-legger is a vegetarian, so we never have this kind of good stuff around. And she doesn't cook it herself. So, I decided if it's not good enough for her, it certainly isn't good enough for me. I proceeded to nibble on the philodendron. (it's hard to believe that I'm double the size of my co-cat)
